US roster announced for October friendlies

US manager Bob Bradley

Bob Bradley announced the roster for the October friendlies against Poland and Colombia. The big-ish surprise is that Landon Donovan was left off the roster. I am completely okay with that because Donovan has earned a break. His spot is secure. What Bradley should be doing is looking at new talent. Youngsters need a chance to break through onto the national team if the US is to have any hope at next year’s Gold Cup and the World Cup Qualifying campaign. Hopefully US Soccer made that clear to Bradley when it decided to retain him for another 4 years.

Here’s the roster:

Goalkeepers: Brad Guzan, Tim Howard

Defenders: Carlos Bocanegra, Steve Cherundolo, Clarence Goodson, Eric Lichaj, Oguchi Onyewu, Michael Parkhurst, Heath Pearce, Jonathan Spector

Midfielders: Alejandro Bedoya, Michael Bradley, Maurice Edu, Benny Feilhaber, Stuart Holden, Jermaine Jones, Brek Shea

Forwards: Jozy Altidore, Clint Dempsey, Eddie Johnson
